How often have you been told to brush and floss your teeth every day? For some people, this reminder comes from the dentist, and that is because Dr. James Powell and our team understand just how these simple habits can make a big difference in your oral health. A lack of good oral hygiene can lead to a buildup of plaque and bacteria on the teeth and around the gum line, and it can ultimately lead to gingivitis or gum disease. Any form of gum disease is harmful to your oral and overall health, and we at Exceptional Dentistry are here to help you prevent gum disease. However, should it develop, our dentist can treat it with periodontics in Palmdale, California. Don’t let gingivitis gum up your life; call us today at (661) 349-7725 to schedule your visit and let us take care of your smile!
